I like to do this for Christmas morning instead of standing at the stove, and thank goodness - everyone goes for seconds! Sausage, eggs, bread, and cheese snuggle down in a casserole, chill overnight, and bake in the morning. It's a hearty dish worth waking up for. This is the BEST breakfast casserole ever! I have made it several times for Christmas. This past weekend was my daughters high school prom and our house ended up being the "after party". I put out a spread for them including this casserole. The kids raved about it! My daughters bf asked me when I was going to make it again! So...I will be making it again this weekend! LOL! That was over 31 years ago !
